I'm not confused. I just don't know why you said "I wouldn't say tennis requires more talent or exertion than any other sport". I mean, did someone say that that made you respond? I didn't. I just said that tennis requires more exertion than many other sports. But like you said, it's exertion in different ways, so saying that has no intrinsic value anyways. .-.
Forgive me, I added a word I shouldn't have :oops: My point still stands that just because the exertion is different, doesn't make it any less.
Is marching band a sport? Also, state science olympiad involves a lot of running for me. OSU is one of the largest campuses in the country.
I wouldn't consider marching band itself to be pure sport, though it contains much of the same qualities. I believe it's filed under the category of "marching arts." I just mentioned guard because I do a lot of running and practicing for it :D

Take color guard for example--in terms of exertion, that is--we make sure to stretch out thoroughly before doing anything else because of how much we use various muscles. How you view a sport is entirely arbitrary.

Made JV tennis in 7th grade. The weird thing is, I've gotten exponentially better, but I still might not make it this year

I hope I can make varsity tennis. I haven't played in a while, and the season starts in the spring. I don't know if I can get, like, worse. >.>

I'm a tennis player. Couldn't quite make varsity this season. I've got one more year

Is it just me, or does it seem like Indiana is one of the only states who has boys tennis in the fall?
